... the station, not one, or two, or even three staff greeted us - but six!!! Yes, six - what they were doing? I'm not sure! One woman asked to see our tickets, but when I asked her about changing at Plymouth, she wasn't sure, even though I knew we had to!

... Further out on Tintagel Island are the remains of an earlier castle popularly believed to be where King Arthur was born. All the signs stress that he is a mythical character, but I know he was real and looks a lot like Sean Connery.
